CALD health

More than 55,200 people living in South Eastern NSW are from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. The area has long been a place of settlement for migrants, humanitarian entrants and refugees.

People from CALD backgrounds and refugees commonly experience a range of language barriers and hardships that can have major implications on health status and the delivery of health care.

Across the region, there are a number of services and resources available to assist GPs and health practitioners with the care of patients from CALD backgrounds.
